SoPhilly Spotlight: Designer-owned Broad Street brownstone edition

This week’s SoPhilly Spotlight is a 2,778 sq. ft. home right on Broad Street. The designer-owned brownstone is complete with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and plenty of lavish details (have you ever wanted a separate space for an au pair or guests? You have it here).


If you have $769,900 to spend, this home at 1630 S. Broad St. could be yours.

From the Coldwell Banker listing:

WOW – not to be missed! Broad Street brownstone owned by a designer – meticulous attention to detail and thoughtful renovations throughout. Recent upgrades – central air mini split, 3rd floor au pair/in law suite, and stunningly stylish roof deck with sweeping views of the skyline.




Classic facade has wrought iron gated entryway with long staircase to a double entry door into a vintage style vestibule. Enter the home and immediately notice the plaster walls, gorgeous moldings, soaring ceilingheight, tall windows, hardwood floors with intricate inlays, and elegant well-proportioned rooms.




First floor has a beautiful living room with richly stained molding, built in bar and outdoor access. A charming powder room is conveniently nestled under the stair case. The formal dining room is located directly off the kitchen and is flooded with light by numerous windows. The kitchen is large, bright, and airy with a row of windows over the sink, white Shaker style cabinets, a soothing blue gray paint job, plenty of space for a table, and a breakfast bar looking over the dining room.


Head outside from the kitchen to a spacious back brick patio lined by a stone retaining wall filled with lush greenery. The second floor has a brand new marble bathroom with custom vanity and artistic flair.




The back bedroom is two rooms connected by a double door and is currently used as a combined sitting room and office. The whole back of the room has been turned into a sunroom with natural light streaming in from 3 walls of windows where you can catch a glimpse of the center city skyline.




The front of the second floor has a master bedroom with a fireplace and is attached to a smaller room that could be used as a sitting room, nursery, or a closet. The third floor has a large bedroom, a sitting room, and its own eat in kitchen, laundry room, and full bathroom.


A small deck off of an eat in kitchen has a grill and a spiral stair case up to one of the most fabulous roof decks we have ever seen. The deck runs the full span of the home which leaves plenty of room for a long dining table and plenty of lounge furniture.



The view is incredible and feels very private. There is a full basement that has recently been cleaned and painted that houses another laundry room and has room for plenty of storage. Security cameras everywhere. Steps away from all the best shops and restaurants of Passyunk Square. Easy access in and out of the city.

    The house seems nice enough, but man that photographer totally earned her/his money on those. Bravo.

    Yeah… that’s pretty sweet. Not many gems like that left.

    The PGW bill might be a bit frightening come winter, though if I had the $769K for the house, I doubt I’d be sweating it.
